Continuing Education Requirements

  • All licensees are required to earn twenty clock hours of continuing education within the two-year licensure period. Ten continuing education hours shall be acquired in the area of licensure. For a speech-language pathology license the ten hours shall be specific to the clinical practice of speech-language pathology; for an audiology license the ten hours shall be specific to the clinical practice of audiology. Ten continuing education hours may be acquired in areas related to speech-language pathology or audiology or both.

  • An individual licensed as both an audiologist and speech-language pathologist shall earn twenty continuing education hours for each license within the two-year licensure. However, appropriate continuing education hours may be used for both licenses. Ten continuing education hours shall be acquired in each area of licensure.

  • A licensee is not required to obtain continuing education for the first renewal following their initial licensure issue date. Please refer to continuing education requirements under Ohio Administrative Code section 4753-4-01 for more information.

  • You are required to save documentation of completed Continuing Education for at least four years after the date of your license renewal. Documentation will be required in the event you are audited.

  • Late Renewals: All late renewal applications will be audited for compliance with continuing education requirements (excluding aides). Submit continuing education documentation showing your completion of the required twenty (20) hours of continuing education. Acceptable documentation must show the sponsor, date of attendance, subject, credit hours, your name and a brief description of the course objective. Please attach your license number on all documents. The best documentation is a copy of ASHA/AAA registry, an unofficial college transcript, or a certificate of completion for a workshop, seminar, class or In-Service. Electronic copies received at the Board e-mail board@slpaud.ohio.gov, via PDF format along with course objectives, are preferred and will be reviewed and processed first. Copies may be faxed or mailed to the Board office along with your late renewal application; however, paper copies received via facsimile or mail and/or without course objectives will be processed last. Continuing education should have been completed from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2012.

    On-Time Renewals: Do not send continuing education documentation to the Board at this time if your renewal application was received on or before 12/31/2012.
